Lucas Duda (intercostal) went 0-for-2 with a walk Wednesday in his first rehab game with the GCL Mets.

Duda also played five innings in left field. He figures to play a few more games in the minors, but should be back with the Mets by the end of the month.

Matt Duffy went 4-for-5 with an RBI double, a run scored and a stolen base as the Giants topped the Braves 8-3 on Tuesday.

Duffy had three singles to go with his RBI double, and the steal was his fifth of the year. The infielder hasn't had back-to-back hitless games since July 2-3, and Tuesday's outburst has his line up to .309/.346/.465. He'll have some stiff competition, but Duffy is square in the middle of the Rookie of the Year race in the National League.

Maikel Franco hit a grand slam in the seventh inning, helping the Phillies fend off the Dodgers on Tuesday.

Franco, who finished 1-for-4, made the Dodgers pay for some erratic pitching in the seventh when he ripped a Joel Peralta pitch into the stands in left field for a tie-breaking grand slam, putting the Phillies up 5-1. Franco is on a six-game hitting streak, batting .282/.339/.491 overall with 12 home runs and 44 RBI. If he can keep it up, he'll be in the conversation for the NL Rookie of the Year Award at the end of the season.

Jon Niese held the Marlins to one run over seven innings in the Mets' 5-1 win on Tuesday.

Niese gave up a run in the third inning but otherwise kept the Marlins in check. The southpaw allowed just four hits and a walk while striking out six. The strong start was his third such in his last four starts, but he's just 6-9 on the year. Niese will take a 3.51 ERA and 1.33 WHIP into Monday's start against the Rockies.

Wilson Ramos hit a tie-breaking two-run single in the eighth inning, proving crucial in Tuesday's one-run victory against the Diamondbacks.

Ramos broke a 3-3 tie in the eighth inning when he plated two runs against reliever David Hernandez. He finished 2-for-3 with a walk on the evening. The catcher hasn't been much to write home about offensively, batting .239/.266/.365 with nine home runs and 45 RBI.

Mets acquired LHP Eric O'Flaherty and cash considerations from the Athletics in exchange for a player to be named later.

O'Flaherty was designated for assignment by the A's last weekend but has landed on his feet quickly. The left-hander hasn't been the same pitcher since all the injuries hit, as his 5.91 ERA in 25 games for Oakland this year can attest. He can still get lefties out, though, having held them to a .186/.286/.209 batting line this season. O'Flaherty is taking Alex Torres' spot in the bullpen.
Aug 4 - 10:50 PM

Jake Arrieta didn't let the Pirates touch home plate in his seven innings of work, earning the win on Tuesday.

The right-hander was dominant, yielding only two hits and three walks with five strikeouts in the effort. After breaking out last season with a 2.53 ERA -- following years of mediocrity with the Orioles -- Arrieta has repeated this season, brandishing a 2.50 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP, and a 152/37 K/BB ratio over 147 2/3 innings. He'll make a home start against the Giants next.
Aug 4 - 10:31 PM

Anthony Rizzo went 4-for-5 with a two doubles and two runs scored in Tuesday's win against the Pirates.

Rizzo doubled and scored in the third inning, and did the same in the fifth, accounting for two of the Cubs' five runs in their shutout win. The first baseman is having a terrific year, though it's been cast aside slightly by Bryce Harper and Paul Goldschmidt. Rizzo is batting .293/.401/.534 with 20 home runs, 61 RBI, 59 runs scored, and 14 stolen bases.
Aug 4 - 10:28 PM

Aroldis Chapman struck out two in the ninth inning to close out the Reds' 3-2 win over the Cardinals on Tuesday.

Chapman fanned Kolten Wong and Randal Grichuk before getting Mark Reynolds to fly out to end the game. The left-hander now owns a 1.77 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 81/24 K/BB ratio over 45 2/3 innings this year. He could have gained some trade value with a move at the deadline, but even in Cincinnati Chapman is the game's best reliever.
Aug 4 - 10:17 PM

Salvador Perez had a terrific night in the batter's box, finishing 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI in Tuesday's win versus the Tigers.

Perez put the Royals up 1-0 in the second inning with an RBI single, then extended it to 3-0 in the fourth with a two-run home run off of Justin Verlander. The backstop had been mired in a slump, batting .074 (2-for-27) in his last eight games. Perez is carrying a slugging-heavy .249/.262/.425 batting line with 16 home runs and 46 RBI this season.
Aug 4 - 10:02 PM

Marco Estrada held the Twins to one run in 6 2/3 innings, earning his ninth win of the season on Tuesday.

The Twins scored their only run in the fourth inning on Torii Hunter's sacrifice fly. Estrada scattered a pair of hits and a pair of walks while punching out five batters. He's given up two or fewer earned runs in eight of his last nine starts. It's no surprise then, that he has a terrific 3.40 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and an 86/34 K/BB ratio over 111 1/3 innings. Estrada will take on the first-place Yankees in the Bronx next.
Aug 4 - 9:48 PM

David Wright (back) is hoping to begin a rehab assignment early next week.

Wright took a full round of batting practice on Tuesday and also did other activities, as he'll be put through strenuous workouts for five straight days. If he gets through that with no setbacks, he'll be cleared to play in games. "At this point, I just want to get in the lineup," Wright said. "I want to be part of the fun." Wright has been limited to just eight games this season due to spinal stenosis.
